We are aware that an unaffiliated company has (in bad faith) registered the trademark ‘Xyrena' in China but we haven't heard of any counterfeit products yet. If you find any Xyrena products sold in mainland China please be aware that these are fake and not produced by or affiliated with us. Only products sold directly through our site or retailers on our stockists page can be guaranteed authentic.
We currently sell products on our site to customers in Hong Kong and are open to retail partnerships because animal testing is not required for physical sales in Hong Kong. For more information check out this great article by Logical Harmony: Can Brands Sell In Hong Kong And Be Cruelty-Free?
We have also applied for the required FDA export documentation to sell products direct to consumers in China via our site starting in August 2018.

Commercial shipments of cosmetics must be compliant with EU requirements regarding labeling. It needs to be labelled in Italian to be imported with a detailed description of the ingredients of goods (e.g content, expiry date etc.).
Importer must provide a health permit (issued by Health Minister Border Office) that can be requested through UPS with additional costs.
Russian customs also makes the import of cosmetics very difficult and at this time we're unable to streamline these requirements into our fulfillment process. Additionally our international shipping partner UPS is unable to clear any perfume products exceeding 9% alcohol into Russia.

- Shipments of cosmetics require a conformity declaration/certificate. It must be provided to customs authority while arriving to the customs territory of Russian Federation. The conformity declaration/certificate must be published on ROSAKKREDITACIA web portal (fsa.gov.ru). The commodity should be labelled by a special sign: EAC (Eurasian Conformity).If the conformity declaration/certificate and/or EAC sign is missed, shipments will be rejected by customs and returned back to the shipper.
- Cosmetics intended not for resale/samples may be imported without the conformity declaration/certificate if the total number of items does not exceed 5 pieces. The consignee must guarantee in writing that such samples are imported for internal use only, and not for resale.
A copy of the government registration certificate issued by ROSPOTREBNADZOR must accompany the shipment together with an invoice in Russian language attested by the shipper to avoid an immediate return of the shipments.
Please see information on Sanitary-Epidemiological Control in section Additional Clearance Information for more details.
Cosmetics with an alcohol content exceeding 9% are subject to excise tax and cannot be cleared by UPS. Any delays or accessorial fees are the responsibility of the consignee.
“Extrait” should not be confused with “Eau”. Terms like Eau de Parfum, Eau de Cologne, and Eau de Toilette means that water has been added to the formulation, “eau” is French for water.
Our Unisex Extrait de Parfum is competitively priced. We dare you to find a genuine Extrait for less – most brands sell for $200+ for just 1 oz!
We're in the process of updating all of our packaging to meet European standards which includes disclosing 26 potential skin allergens (exceeding 0.001% concentration) in the ingredients list of each product.
During this transitional phase some original packaging won't include allergens in the ingredient list but all new products will.
We're also in the process of adding ingredient lists to each individual product page on our site. Please refer to product pages for the most current information and potential allergens.
Due to the complex nature of fragrance formulations and our growing catalog we unfortunately can't respond to individual inquiries about specific ingredients.
XY – Male & Female chromosomes (hence our unisex fragrances and cosmetics)

And in case you're wondering, the “X” is pronounced as a “Z”.
